Feature Recognition

When you apply DimXpert dimensions to manufacturing features, DimXpert uses these methods in this order to recognize features:

  1. Model feature recognition
  2. Topology recognition

Model Feature Recognition

The benefit of model feature recognition is that identified features update if you modify the model feature, especially if you add features or faces. DimXpert recognizes these design features:

  • Chamfer
  • Cosmetic thread
  • Certain extrudes (for pattern extraction)
  • Fillet
  • Hole Wizard hole
  • Simple hole
  • Certain patterns (bosses, cones, width, linear, circular, and mirror for pattern extraction)
